Moon transitions from equitable Libra to intense Scorpio today 7-12-2016

Mars in Libra

Starting the day with the Libra Moon squaring Mercury in Cancer sounds a recipe for snarky comments. All the more reason to practice good manners even if our smiles are a bit stiff. After that the Moon goes void-of-course until afternoon when she slips into Scorpio’s waters. Venus, newly arrived in Leo, will square the Scorpio Moon late afternoon. Moderate those flirtatious behaviors if you don’t want jealousy to rear its ugly head! Use the morning for tasks that need the objectivity the airy Libra Moon can give us because once the Moon enters Scorpio, detachment is much harder to find. 🌠☾♎🌠 ➱ 🌠☾♏🌠

Venus in Leo has officially arrived in Leo today! Being fiery, passionate and determined to enjoy life are all part of this Venus’s charm. Mercury will be joining her in Leo tomorrow, bringing the number of planets in fire signs up to four. Outgoing, exuberant fire asks us to open our hearts and actively participate in life. During the transition from water to fire, we do need to be sensitive to people’s feelings or risk getting a serious steam burn!
